reiki_symbolsWhat is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on Japanese therapy that releases blocked energy in the chakras, clearing space for your body-mind to physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually heal itself. Reiki addresses a realm of mind and body energy that is beyond the mechanical approaches of Western medicine.

reiki_shaeWhat can you expect?

As a Reiki client, you lie comfortably on your back on a massage table, while gentle music plays in the background. If you are not sensitive to scents, candles and scented oils are used to create a relaxing, spa-like environment where you can really unwind and let go of all your worldly concerns. You begin by closing your eyes and taking a few deep breaths. The Reiki practitioner then lightly places their hands in various positions around your head and neck, chest, ribs and abdomen, ankles and feet. The session ends with a few hand positions on your torso, while you are lying on your stomach. At the end, we have a conversation about what kinds of energy flows occurred during the session, how they resonate with you, and what they mean in the context of your life.

Because everyone is unique and has unique challenges, lives, bodies and minds, everyone experiences a Reiki session a little differently. You might feel my hands get hot or sweat a bit during the session; this is just the energetics of Reiki that we can most easily feel. You might also feel areas of hot or cold, tingling, itching, or movement in places on your body, which may or may not correspond to where my hands are placed. You might see colors or shapes behind your closed eyes. You might feel emotions like sadness or anger—some people cry during Reiki. You might feel so relaxed that after a few moments you drift to sleep. Reiki clears anything that needs to be released in your mind-body, and thereby creates space for you to move forward with more ease. You really need to try it to see what it does for you.

I’ve worked on people who “believe” in Reiki as well as those who don’t, and all of them have had interesting experiences. Reiki is important for anyone who is overwhelmed with day-to-day life—anyone who needs to slow down, care for themselves a little more, and cultivate the relaxation response. It is not only a wonderful experienced for those with chronic stress, but is also very helpful for those with chronic illnesses or pain. It is great to have done before and after a medical procedure, to help you prepare mentally and physically, to handle the actual event, and to recover effectively.

For most people, Reiki is a relaxing experience, like you might experience while getting a massage. My clients have also reported:

  • Feeling more centered and grounded
  • Seeing colors more vibrantly
  • Having more energy
  • Easier and deeper breathing
  • Experiencing less pain from chronic health issues
  • Feeling more open and aware
  • Faster healing from acute injuries
  • Improved sleep

Get trained in Reiki

For those interested in learning how to do Reiki, I also offer training. Each level of Reiki training includes an attunement, which is a short, ceremonial process that initiates students into working with the healing energy of Reiki. I offer training in Levels I, II, Advanced, and Master (Reiki Teacher). Imagine being able to access this amazing healing energy yourself, throughout all the ups and downs in your life! Or how wonderful it would be to heal your loved ones, your friends, and even your pets; or, how rewarding it would be to volunteer your healing services at hospitals, clinics, or nursing homes. The possibilities are endless.

I have been trained as a Reiki Master and am part of a lineage that leads to Dr. Mikao Usui, who founded the healing system known as Reiki. This means I have gone through all the levels of training and received all the necessary attunements to work with and share Reiki with others.

Class sizes are intentionally kept small (1-3) and are scheduled on request. Contact me to request a class, and check the calendar for upcoming classes.

  • Reiki Level I is the basic course in Reiki—no prerequisites are required. Students are educated about Reiki energy (what it is / is not, its history and application, etc.) and receive one energy-activating attunement, along with hands-on training in the application of the Reiki technique for self and others. Includes a manual and certificate of completion. Please plan about 5 hours.
  • Reiki Level II requires Level I certification (bring/use same manual). Students receive the second level attunement and learn specific techniques for enhancing the flow of Reiki energy and for performing “distance” treatments. Students also learn a special method for dealing with deep-seated emotional and mental problems. Please plan about 4 hours.
  • Advanced Reiki certification requires the student to have completed Levels I and II. Students learn an additional symbol, learn some additional healing techniques, and a very deep meditation. Students also receive the advanced level attunement. Includes a manual and certificate of completion. Please plan about 5 hours.
  • Master (Teacher) Reiki certification requires students to be at the Advanced level (bring/use same manual). Learn two additional symbols, receive the highest level attunement, and learn how to give the special attunements to activate Reiki energy in others. Please plan about 6 hours.

If you’re interested in Reiki training, please contact me and we’ll talk about what’s scheduled or set up a class.

Kali is such a wealth of knowledge

Kali is such a wealth of knowledge and is so passionate about everything she does. I have done a few of her workshops and I love her yoga style! I tried Reiki for the first time with her and it was very moving and a great experience. I can't recommend her enough!

A really talented and intuitive healer

Kali is a really talented and intuitive healer. I've been in her group yoga classes and have had reiki with her. I've had a wonderful experience with her. I feel really good after reiki and very different from when I come in to the session. I also love the impressions and insights Kali offers. I highly recommend her services.

I felt all this intense healing energy flowing to a chronic problem…

While I am no stranger to “alternative medicine,” I had never experienced Reiki before. I was thoroughly astonished as I felt all this intense healing energy flowing to a chronic problem of a childhood concussion head injury. I don’t know a lot about Reiki, but I sure was impressed. Kali brings a great passion and intensity to her work. Highly recommended.

At the end of the treatment I felt completely relaxed and re-energized.

Kali has the right stuff; a healer with incredible talent. My main complaints were wrist and side-torso pain, as well as feeling out of sorts. From the moment Kali began her Reiki treatment, the warmth generated by her presence soothingly calmed me to the point I fell into a deep, restful state. At the end of the treatment I felt completely relaxed and re-energized. Over the next couple of days not only did I feel great, the wrist and side pain, which had plagued me for a number of days, completely disappeared. Kali has an uncanny ability to lock-in and deliver exactly what’s needed, a gift that comes highly recommended!

I felt everything was brighter — colors more vivid.

I just wanted to thank you for the Reiki session–I found it to be very relaxing. When I left your studio I felt everything was brighter — colors more vivid. As the week had gone on I felt different things: one day my breathing seemed better, and I did seem more relaxed and I had more energy. It was a great experience thank you!

I was skeptical of this practice at first, but no more.

On my first session, I felt intense heat burst out of my chest area (heart chakra). I was skeptical of this practice at first, but no more. I have been so impressed with what I've felt both physically and emotionally, that I decided to learn this practice for myself. All I can say is wow! What a difference this has made in my life. I highly recommend Kali as both a Reiki practitioner and as a teacher. I fully plan on using my new skills to work with animals, and I can't wait to continue my training with Kali, all the way up to Reiki Master!

The perfect combination for a middle-aged beginner

Kali is both knowledgeable and approachable, the perfect combination for a middle-aged beginner to the world of yoga, Reiki, and breath. In addition to group yoga practice, Reiki, and a breath workshop, I invested in a private yoga session where Kali put together a personalized home practice for me. It is amazing the difference a few gentle moves, designed with expertise and compassion, have made in how I feel in both body and mind.
